Cannes: Ken Loach Downplays Past Comments on Retirement Plans

Cannes: Ken Loach Downplays Retirement Comments - Hollywood Reporter The Irish period drama is the 77-year-old British director's 12th Palme d'Or contender. VIDEO: Steve Carell, Marion Cotillard, Others Preview Their Upcoming Films in Cannes "I said that in a moment of maximum pressure when we hadn't shot a foot of film and the mountain in front of us was quite high, and I thought I can't go through this again," he told a press conference here Thursday morning after his film screened about his future. "We'll watch the [soccer] World Cup and see what the autumn brings," he added, giving the likelihood of making another film a "maybe." Said Loach: "It's a hard job to give up." Later in the press conference, he also alluded to future projects when addressing the industry's move to digital. "We're going to carry on cutting on film - if there's another film," he said. PHOTOS: The Scene at Cannes 2014 Sony Pictures Classics has picked up North American rights to Jimmy's Hall.

Cannes: Harvey Weinstein Promises ‘A Little Documentary’ About Syrian Refugee Camps

Cannes: Harvey Weinstein Promises ‘A Little Documentary’ About Syrian Refugee Camps

Cannes: Harvey Weinstein Promises 'A Little Documentary' About Syrian Refugee Camps - The Hollywood Reporter PHOTOS: Harvey Weinstein's Most Notable Proteges Speaking of the visit he made with his wife Georgina Chapman under U.N. auspices, he said, “I read some funny things that [it was] because of the Grace of Monaco screening, but the trip was planned long before Grace was going to be the opening night at Cannes.” Instead of revisiting that subject, he focused instead on the plight of the 400,000 refugees, the Jordanians who have taken them in, and the kids he met who were excited to talk movies with him. “We’re going to make a little documentary about that and the bravery of the Jordanian people,” he promised. While Weinstein has used past presentations to talk up specific Oscar contenders, this year he let a reel of trailers speak for him. The movies on display ran the gambit from the musical-themed movie Begin Again, starring Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo to the The Giver, a futuristic tale of teens confronting their future in a dystopian society. The line-up also included the animated movie Underdogs and live action/animated hybrid Paddington; the love story The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, which is playing in Un Certain Regard; Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For; the Bill Murray comedy St. Vincent; The Imitation Game, in which Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Alan Turning; and Tim Burton’s Big Eyes. Undated releases include a new MacBeth, starring Michael Fassbender, the World War II drama Suite Francais; the boxing pic Southpaw; Tulip Fever and Women in Gold. Conspicuously absent from the reel was Grace of Monaco, which the Weinstein Co. will release in the U.S. after a noisy battle with the film’s director Olivier Dahan. Waylaid by reporters as he made his exit from the presentation, Weinstein called the director a “nice guy.” Admitting that the Monaco royal family, which has objected to the film, has a “legitimate problem” with the movie, he suggested there is an unspecified scene he would like to add back into the movie that would address their concerns. Also on hand for the formal part of the presentation were Naomi Watts, who appears in St. Vincent as what Weinstein jokingly called “a Russian woman of the night. It was typecasting,” to which Watts responded, “I got to play a different character. It was not typecasting at all.” Ryan Reynolds, who will star in Woman in Gold, about efforts to reclaim a painting by Gustav Klimt, offered up a joke of his own, saying, “I think I was born to play a Jewish restitution lawyer.” The presentation also included some footage from Southpaw, a boxing picture in which Jake Gyllenhaal and Forest Whitaker are starring for director Antoine Fuqua. “Making a boxing movie has its challenges, especially when Martin Scorsese set the bar, and Sylvester Stallone, too,” Weinstein admitted. “After you get back from a trip to Jordan and you see 10 kids talking about all of the movies they love, even though they’re living through terribly tough times, it makes me proud to be, with you all, part of this industry,” Weinstein concluded.

Cannes: Sundance Selects Picks Up North American Rights to ‘The Blue Room’

Cannes: Sundance Selects Picks Up North American Rights to 'The Blue Room' - The Hollywood Reporter The film is described as a mysterious noir that follows a man and a woman as they meet in a hotel for trysts. In the afterglow, they share a few sweet nothings. At least the man seemed to believe they were nothing. Suddenly under investigation by the police, the man must figure out what happened, and of what exactly is he accused? PHOTOS: The Scene at Cannes 2014
President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films Jonathan Sehring said: “Mathieu Amalric is proving to be as formidable as a filmmaker as he is an actor. This is a superlative film."
The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, senior vice president of acquisitions and productions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with producer Paolo Branco on behalf of Alfama Films.

Cannes: Daniel Radcliffe Circling Comedy ‘You Shall Know Our Velocity’

Cannes: Daniel Radcliffe Circling Comedy ‘You Shall Know Our Velocity’

Cannes: Daniel Radcliffe Circling Comedy 'You Shall Know Our Velocity' - The Hollywood Reporter Tim Perrell's Process and Michael Benaroya's Benaroya Pictures are teaming on the project, which is being shopped at the Cannes Film Market by International Film Trust, the sales company run co-founded by Benaroya and run Christian de Gallegos. PHOTOS: Cannes Carpet: The Most Glamorous Gowns at the Fest In Velocity, based on the best-selling book by Dave Eggers, the Harry Potter actor will play a bookish and awkward young man who sets off with a self-proclaimed ladies' man to take a late friend's ashes to the Egyptian pyramids. Armed with a round-the-world plane ticket and a $32,000 insurance payoff from the car accident that killed their friend, their plan is to give the money away along the way to those in need. “Dave Eggers is a gifted story-teller and we are thrilled to be turning his hilarious, yet poignant story, of two best friends traveling the world into a feature film,” Benaroya said in a statement. Added de Galleogs, who is IFT president: “Playing the lead character in the biggest film franchise of all time, Daniel Radcliffe has managed to successfully establish himself as one of the most versatile actors of his generation and he is perfect to play Will in Peter Sollett’s nomadic comedy adventure." CAA and UTA are co-repping rights to the film. Sollet is set to shooting in Spring 2015 from an adapted script by Wells Tower. Radcliffe's upcoming films include Frankenstein, due out in 2015.

Melissa McCarthy Talks Dating Gay Men, Crushing on Lena Dunham and Kissing Susan Sarandon

Melissa McCarthy Talks Dating Gay Men, Crushing on Lena Dunham and Kissing Susan Sarandon

Melissa McCarthy Talks Dating Gay Men, Crushing on Lena Dunham and Kissing Susan Sarandon - The Hollywood Reporter "The more I watch Girls, the more I realize I’m crazy about Lena Dunham," she told The Advocate in an interview published Thursday. "She’s my girl crush. She’s smart, funny, confident, and she isn’t afraid to look awkward. She’s exactly who she is, take it or leave it. Nothing’s more charming than someone who doesn’t take herself too seriously." VIDEO: Melissa McCarthy Gets Caught 'Unrobbing' a Burger Joint in New 'Tammy' Trailer The actress of the upcoming summer comedy Tammy and CBS sitcom Mike & Molly noted that one of the best nights of her life was sneaking off to gay bar Berlin in downtown Chicago when she was in high school. "I remember being undressed and then redressed by two drag queens up on a pillar, and at the end I looked like Bea Arthur," she said, adding of the LGBT community, "It was just my world. I was a little odd, and I found them to be the most accepting group. We were a band of outsiders who went downtown and realized, 'Oh, we’re all right.' There were tons of creative people doing their thing, and it was only the scared people who wanted to shut it down ... They accepted me as a woman trying to be a man who’s trying to be a woman. I wanted to be a drag queen so badly. I’ll bet I still own more wigs than any drag queen — I love me a wig." (She has about 25 wigs at any given time, she said.) McCarthy also noted in the interview that, like her Mike & Molly character, she has dated gay men. "There were so many. In my early 20s I was like the last stop before a guy said, “Yep, it’s official: I’m gay.” I’d be like, 'Really?!' I’d think, But he’s so funny, so charming, and such a good dresser. I never saw it coming." She also apologized for the show's use of the slur "shemale" last year: "Had I known it was such a sensitive topic, I would’ve had them change that. So many people get blasted on the show, and I feel like everyone should get equal slaps, but I’m never for comedy that turns mean-spirited." PHOTOS: Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone's Valentine's Day Photo Shoot And in Tammy, McCarthy and Susan Sarandon go on a road trip together, reuniting the two after a smooch on a Mike & Molly episode. "She is one of the coolest women I’ve ever met, by a landslide. She’s so interesting, so intelligent, and such a great humanitarian. The fact that I got to spend time with her — and now consider her a friend — is pretty surreal. I was having a delightful breakdown during filming ... She’s a good kisser, by the way. I loved that Molly actually considers it for a moment when Susan’s character propositions her. Molly’s like, Hmm … should I? Nope, I’m married. But the joke on set was that I don’t know if I’d really be able to say no! I mean, come on, it’s Susan Sarandon." Tammy, co-written with husband Ben Falcone, also features a lesbian couple played by Kathy Bates and Sandra Oh. "They’re based on some of my couple friends," McCarthy said. "They’re the goal. As Tammy and her grandmother spiral downward, we wanted them to see this lovely, adjusted couple and realize that, if they made an effort, they could have that, too. Kathy and Sandra played it beautifully. Sandra and Kathy had known each other from before, so they had this fantastic ease together. I totally bought them as a dreamy couple. They just looked so in love, like they’d been together forever. They didn’t even need to speak; Kathy would give Sandra these looks and I’d think, Aww, that’s the good stuff. They were magical together. "There’s a scene where she basically tells Tammy to quit bitching about her life," McCarthy continued of Bates, whose character compares Tammy's troubles to her own struggles as a lesbian. "Before we shot it, I remember telling Kathy, 'Okay, this is when you really hand it to me.' She said, 'No, I’m saying it with love to try to help you,' and she delivered the speech so beautifully. She tells Tammy, 'Gay hasn’t always been in fashion, my friend,' and she delivers the line with the weight of everything you know can possibly be attached to it. It’s one of my favorite scenes in the movie." Read The Advocate's full interview with McCarthy here.

Christina Applegate: Sadie Doesn’t Get Her Fashion Sense from Me

Christina Applegate: Sadie Doesn’t Get Her Fashion Sense from Me

Courtesy FabKids

Christina Applegate has always been one to watch on the red carpet.

But, these days, the actress’s style has taken a backseat to another fashionista: 3-year-old daughter Sadie Grace.

“I’m total yoga-pant mom at this point. Sweatpants or whatever I’ve exercised in that day is what I’ll end up wearing for the rest of the day,” Applegate tells PEOPLE.

“People at her school are lucky if I show up in my pajamas, so [Sadie] doesn’t get any fashion sense from me.”

Applegate may prefer to keep it comfortable and casual during school runs, but Sadie uses the everyday affair as an opportunity to get glamorous in her favorite satin frock. And we mean favorite.

“For awhile there she had three dresses [and] those were the only dresses she wore, every day for weeks — weeks upon weeks,” she explains.

“Finally, don’t tell her, but I had to hide one of them because it was just like, ‘I can’t take it anymore!’ Don’t tell her I did that — it was only one dress.”

Fortunately, Sadie — who has been picking out her own outfits for over a year — has plenty of cute clothes to choose from in her closet.

In 2012, Applegate helped launch FabKids, an online monthly subscription children’s boutique that personalizes orders based off customers’ profiles. And the actress’s daughter is a big fan.

“Today, she picks out this pink, twirly dress, tulle, that has these gold polka dots on it … with a pair of FabKids navy jean leggings with pockets.”

Applegate adds, “None of it made any sense, but that’s what she was feeling. I’m like, ‘Okay, Babe. You go there.”

And while Sadie’s outfit creations may be eclectic, they all have one signature element: under every dress must go a pair of leggings.

“I was like, ‘You know, you can wear the dress without them,’” Applegate recalls. “Then one day she did, she went to school and she tripped and skinned her knee. It was the first time she had really skinned her knee. She was like, ‘I should’ve worn leggings!’ ‘Okay, you can go back to wearing leggings, whatever you need.’ I felt so bad!”

Courtesy FabKids

But just because Applegate lets Sadie experiment sartorially, doesn’t mean she lets her little girl explore life without any limits.

“They say terrible twos, but it’s completely a misnomer — it really is terrible threes. I’m always trying to figure out what is she developmentally going through and, at this point, it’s pushing boundaries,” she says.

“So you have to find a way to allow them to be themselves and to learn from the world, but give them a great road to go on — a great disciplinary road.”

Host Knights return after 5-week layoff to begin Memorial Cup

Host Knights return after 5-week layoff to begin Memorial Cup

If the time to the MasterCard Memorial Cup felt long for the host London Knights, it felt even longer for goaltender Anthony Stolarz.The Knights had five weeks to kill between their second-round elimination in the Ontario Hockey League playoffs and Friday's Cup opener against the Val-d'Or Foreurs.It was over seven weeks for Stolarz because of an eight-game suspension for slashing a Windsor Spitfire in a first-round game March 25.Jake Patterson finished out London's playoff run, which lasted six more games. The OHL waived the final two games of Stolarz's suspension so he could play in the Memorial Cup."To be honest, I just want to go out there and compete," said the 20-year-old from Jackson, N.J."Obviously not playing, I think it was 56 days, was a little bit of a challenge, but I think over the last three and a half weeks of practice we've competed and battled and we couldn't be any more ready for this tournament."Stolarz backstopped the Knights to an OHL title in 2013 with a 13-4-1 post-season record. The Philadelphia Flyers prospect posted a goals-against average of 2.53 and a save percentage was .923.But the 19-year-old Patterson, from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., played more games for the Knights this season.Stolarz represented the U.S. at the world junior hockey championship in January and was then sidelined for 17 games with a severe leg laceration. Patterson went 22-9-0-3 in the regular season and 2-4 in the playoffs.Patterson's experience combined with Stolarz's lack of recent games made London's goaltending situation hazy for the Memorial Cup, until Knights coach Dale Hunter confirmed he would go with Stolarz as his No. 1 again."It was a tough decision, but Stolz is the guy," Hunter said. "Both of them have been very good in practice."Stolz has been solid for us before he got hurt, and in the playoffs. Suspension and injury put him back, but three or four weeks have honed his game up really good."Stolarz and Patterson both have previous Memorial Cup experience. Stolarz started last year's tournament in Saskatoon, but the six-foot-six goalie appeared to tire after the long playoff run.Patterson finished the tournament giving up one goal in a tiebreaker win over the host Blades and stopping 32 of 34 shots in a 2-1 semifinal loss to Portland.So if Stolarz can't recover his game quickly, Patterson is waiting in the wings."You have to prepare for anything," Patterson said. "If Stoles were to get sick during the season or if I were to get sick and he had to start last minute, I'm sure both of us would be ready. It's kind of the same situation right now."Hunter recruited former NHL goaltender Jeff Hackett to work with both goaltenders in their Memorial Cup preparation."We did a lot of game-oriented drills where we'd focus on plays that happen so often, rebounds, tips from the point," Stolarz said. "Working on things like that got us really prepared for the tournament."
